Drugs Won the War

That’s the title of Nicholas Kristof’s new column in the New York Times

This year marks the 40th anniversary of President Richard Nixon‰s start of the war on drugs, and it now appears that drugs have won. […]
Here in the United States, four decades of drug war have had three consequences:
First, we have vastly increased the proportion of our population in prisons. […]
Second, we have empowered criminals at home and terrorists abroad. […]
Third, we have squandered resources. […]

The movement to reform is unmistakable and unstoppable. It’s just a matter of when and how much dishonest interference the entrenched drug warriors can lay down.

[Thanks, Tom!]
